Famous quotes containing the words darker and/or abnormal:

    It is darker in the woods, even in common nights, than most suppose.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Your Englishman, confronted by something abnormal will always pretend that it isn’t there. If he can’t pretend that, he will look through the object, or round it, or above it or below it, or in any direction except into it. If, however, you force him to look into it, he will at once pretend that he sees the object not for what it is but for something that he would like it to be.
    James Agate (1877–1947)
